Lights, Camera, Action… I mean Education! 35 of DEN members from every region in CA (a huge hooray to those who flew down from way up north to join us!) and even a special out of state guest, pulled in to the American Film Institute’s Los Angeles campus on March 16th for a 2 day institute that would transform them from teacher, to student, to film producer!
I won’t give too many details away as I am sure that each of them will want to share their favorite part with you, but I will say that this had to be one of the most dynamic and diverse groups we have had gather for such a training. Hardly any of these members knew each other from prior events, but they came together from every region, all grade levels, as well as varying ability levels. They completed tasks, shared ideas, but most importantly learned from each other… proving once again that you are each other’s best resources!
Of course, a training wouldn’t be complete without a little celebrating! STAR DEN members also had the opportunity to enjoy desserts and drinks at THE Hall Davidson’s home. Randy Kolset even gave personalized scuba lessons from the pool. Those brave enough were able to dive down and watch videos from Hall’s underwater iPod!
Special thanks to our friends at AFI… Frank, Mitch, Bob, and Marty and to all who came together to make this event a huge success!
